Great job! You have a very versatile voice! I especially liked your drunk version :mrgreen:
I have a few PL notes - this being a longer role, more chances for something to get skipped - but nevertheless you were brilliant! :clap:

Act 1:
A line missing, here in bold "Stalking deer? What sport, sir?", at around 0:43 in the recording.

A line missing ("Now, Anthony Gabb, sit down,") in between "The county's thanks" and "And listen". Around 1:50 in the recording.

And one request, for current 4:30 in the line "By heaven, its glances seem to thread one, and pass on." the "its" is not very clearly heard.

Act 2:
The lines between "Articulation" and "Sir, on the contrary" are missing, starting with "This "Ah, Master Gabb!" or else "Good morning, sir", etc.", around 1:00 in the recording.

Suggestion for pronouncing "Well, read" at current 1:14; it is the imperative of the verb "to read", and not the past participle.

At the very end, last line of Scene 1 is missing ("No!")

Act 3:
Around 2:05, missing line here in bold "It is herself; she knows me! There's no echo [...]"

Around 3:00, missing line here in bold "I'll creep away, And give them notice."

Then in the following line "Amiable pleasantries!" the "amiable" is not very clearly heard.

Around 4:12 (before the line "I - I - eh - I") a line missing "Night-mare's blood!"


Act 4:
At 0:40 and 0:45, a repetition of "Well, I must take my leave". Choose the one you want to remain, and delete the other :D

Around 3:00, missing line here in bold "Mistress Cecil chose to play the witch in the wood. Upon the sport came Hopkins and his ruffians. All were scared [...]"
The name Cecil to be pronounced with the stress on the second syllable as in Cecile.

At the end of the recording, last line "Are you happy [...]" belongs to Act 5. Better upload that in a separate file and I'll make a new section in the Magic Window to include that. :thumbs:

Here are the Act 1 stage directions.

I read some of the interesting front matter, and added names from the MW not in the script.

Thanks, Todd

This is PL OK, though I have a question: on the Persons list page, at the end, it says "A.D. 1634". I was wondering if that sets the time that the story takes place and whether it should be included.
